Sao Paulo will be aiming to overturn a one-goal deficit when they host Lanus at the Estadio do Morumbi on Wednesday at 10:15pm (UK Time) for the second leg of their Copa Sudamericana tie.
Sao Paulo lost 3-2 in Argentina last week despite taking an early lead after just 13 minutes through Brenner. The positive thing is that the Tricolor got back to winning ways in fashion at the weekend as they won 4-1 on the road at Flamengo in the Brazilian Serie A.
Sao Paulo have had an excellent Serie A campaign so far this season and currently sit fifth in the standings, five points behind the current leaders Internacional and with three games in hand.
Fernando Diniz’s side should feel more than confident ahead of this match despite losing in the first leg. They are a very strong team while playing on home soil, having won seven and drawn four of their last eleven competitive games.
On the other hand, Lanus suffered a 2-1 home loss against Boca Junior in the Copa Liga Profesional at the weekend. That was only their second competitive match in eight months and the second game on the trot in which they have conceded two goals. In fact, their victory over Sao Paulo a week ago was their only win in eight competitive games.
The biggest problem for Lanus ahead of this trip will be their poor away form. Lanus have failed to win a single game in their last seven trips and have scored just six goals in the process. Furthermore, they have conceded eight goals in their most recent three away games across all competitions.
Can Sao Paulo win and qualify for the Copa Sudamericana round of 16? Or will Lanus secure their first competitive away victory in twelve months?

Sao Paulo and Lanus’s previous line-ups:
- Sao Paulo (vs Flamengo): Volpi; Reinaldo, B Alves, Costa, Tche Tche; Gomes, D Alves, Luan, Sara; Brenner, Luciano.
- Lanus (vs Boca Juniors): Morales; Di Placido, Thaller, Burdisso, Aguirre; Belmonte, De La Vega, Perez, Vera, Bernabei; Sand.
Coach Fernando Diniz cannot count on the help of Hernanes, Lucas Perri or Walce, with all of them being sidelined due to long-term injuries. Brenner has been fantastic for Sao Paulo with three goals in his last two games, so he should be in the starting line-up here.
Lanus have had only played two official games since the middle of March, so they don’t have any injured or suspended players ahead of this trip to Sao Paulo. Jose Sand should lead the attack here despite his age. The 40-year-old striker has scored three goals in his last two appearances, including a double in the previous leg against Sao Paulo.
